Right. Your original message was To: testlist at mischievous.us so when you
reply-all, your MUA includes that address in the recipients of the reply.

Mailman is not doing that. Possibly something is dropping one of the
messages because of the duplicate Message-ID

What tells Mailman that "mischievous.us" is another way of sending to
this same mailing list is putting testlist at mischievous.us in Privacy
options... -> Recipient filters -> acceptable_aliases of the
testlist at peacock.place list.

Your add_virtualhost('mischievous.us', 'peacock.place') and
add_virtualhost('www.peacock.place', 'peacock.place') have nothing to do
with this.

However, as far as I can see, it is not Mailman putting
testlist at mischievous.us in the Cc: of your reply-all. It is your MUA.
